Sitz baths are a very traditional form of healing. Essentially an individual's bottom and genital area is submerged in very warm water to increase blood flow to the effected area. The sitz bath can be used with just clean warm water or bath salts, baking soda, or other healing products can be added.
Benefits of Sitz Bath
A traditional bathtub can be used as a sitz bath, but that is not always convenient, available or accessible. Sitz baths are commonly used to aid in healing of hemorrhoids, anal fissures, post vaginal baby delivery injuries and can often be a soothing treatment for bouts of constipation or diarrhea.
Halo Healthcare offers a wide assortment of small portable sitz baths that are easy to use either with warm water or bath salts to aid in healing. Sitz bath is suggested for a child, or adult with uncomfortable bowel movements.
Types of Sitz Bath
Sitz baths can be warm or cool, or a combination of the two. To flavour the water, you can use salt, baking soda, or vinegar. Itching, pain, and discomfort caused by conditions like hemorrhoids and genital issues can be relieved by taking a warm bath.
